leadership learning community

The Leadership Learning Community is focused on helping students connect with their peers, make friends, learn about the University of Michigan-Flint community, and build a personal definition of leadership. Through both in class and out of class experiences students will discuss real world applications of different ways leadership can create positive change. This community is supported through multiple departments on campus including Housing and Residential Life, and Student Involvement & Leadership.
